    I’m with you on a lot of what you wrote. I, too, didn’t see Detroit, and I thought Logan Lucky was good-hearted fun (especially Daniel Craig), but didn’t quite strike that magical spark to push it into the top movies of the month. I also agree that Wind River was the best movie in August! Very captivating while being incredibly quiet (up to the last act, of course!) But my #2 and #3 were totally different. I’ve never heard of ‘Good Time’ and that’s pretty strange for me. My second place film was The Glass Castle, and my #3 was Annabelle: Creation, which I thought was much better than Annabelle. The tone was much creepier and it had stronger horror elements.

      It was a toss up between Logan Lucky and Annabelle for the #3 spot for me. August was a pretty light viewing month for me so I didn’t get to see The Glass Castle although I remain intrigued.

    I’m so looking forward to that movie. I really can’t wait. It’s about time to see something decent again in the cinemas 😀

      You got that right! It’s nice that we’re transitioning to Oscar season. I love blockbusters as much as the next guy but this is definitely my favorite time of the year!

    Good quick reviews. I’m probably going to skip Wind River. My first impression after seeing the trailer was that it was The Avengers in the mountains. Probably unfair, but I need to take a break from the superhero actors.

      I don’t think you should stray away from seeing a movie that has known actors in it from popular properties. Wind River is probably one of the better movies this year and has nothing superhero-like about it! It’s tense, dark thriller.
